Hi to everyone!
My previous config
Tuner A1 – USALS – cable connected to motor from motor to first output of a twin LNB
Tuner A2 – second cable of motorized LNB – cable connected directly to second output of a twin LNB
My goal was to upgrade my box with the newest hybrid tuner and use unicable on the second cable split in to 3 cables to feed it.
We are watching mainly channels on 23.5E and 19.2, we rarely move the dish elsewhere, but I have decided to keep the first cable and motor to be able to move the dish to other satellites.
I have bought the following:
- Dreambox Triple 2x DVB-S2X / 1x DVB-C/T2 Tuner
- Inverto Unicable LNB IDLU-QUDL42-UNR2L-1PP http://www.inverto.tv/products/product.php?id=358
- 3way splitter
First I tried to connect it and configure it based only on intuition, but I failed, got GSD many times while in Satfinder trying if the tuners are able to tune.
I even had to restore once, because Enigma refused to start.
So, I went back to internet to gather some knowledge and finally have tried to achieve following config:
Tuner A1 – USALS – cable connected to motor from motor to first LNB output of the new Unicable LNB
Tuner A2 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR2 - one of the 3 split cables connected
Tuner B1 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR3 - one of the 3 split cables connected
Tuner B2 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR4 - one of the 3 split cables connected
But it seems not to be possible, the only SCR which could be stored is the SCR1 and 2. When I try to save SCR3 or 4 on it is reset back to SCR1.
So, I moved back to beginning and now I have just two of the unicable cables connected.
One is connected to the LNB1 input of the new hybrid tuner, which is configured the following way.
Tuner B1 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR1
Tuner B2 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR2 Connected to Tuner B1
The second cable is connected to the built-in tuner to the input A2, the tuners are configured as follows:
Tuner A1 – inactive (when enabled, I was able to move to 19.2, but it didn’t want to move back to 23.5)
Tuner A2 – Unicable 23.5E LNB1 SCR1 - one of the 3 split cables connected
But tuner A2 refuses to store SCR3 or 4 it always resets to SCR1 (see the Enigma log)
Note: I am using the IDLB-QUDL42-UNI2L-1PP in the config, it looks like a predecessor of the one I bought. Hopefully this is the right option.
I have also tried to understand the tuner config saved in the settings file, but it doesn’t make much sense to me, not in the current state. (see the attached file)
It would be great if someone can help me to achieve at least to configure astra 23.5 on all 4 tuners, so I can move forward and after that try to achieve my original goal.
Is my original goal USALS + Unicable possible at all?
Does anybody use such or similar config and wouldn’t mind to share his knowhow?
